A 19-year-old Palestinian suspect was arrested on Thursday in the stabbing of an Israeli soldier earlier in the day.

The suspect, who has not been publicly identified, reportedly stabbed the 32-year-old reservist as he was waiting at a bus stop in Shomron Square in the northern West Bank. Reports said soldiers and civilians who witnessed the attack began firing shots at the terrorist; one shot ricocheted and hit a 26-year-old woman.

The soldier, who was stabbed in his face and upper body, and the woman sustained light-to-moderate injuries and were hospitalized.

All that has been revealed the suspect is that he is from Jamma’in, a Palestinian village in the West Bank.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman tweeted, “Exceptional intelligence and operational work led to the capture of the terrorist, hours after the attack he carried out at Shomron Square.”
